The main objectives of this research are: to assess the T&D programs, to understand the host / home country effects, to understand the role of the host country labor market, and to investigate a relation between the T&D programs and organizational performance. This paper is based on data from interviews with MNCs headquarters officials and expatriates. As well, secondary data has been gathered to further confirm and enhance the results. The findings of this research will be presented in form of an exploratory single case study.
